Activist: Delay to form States assembly, MPs oaths risk the peace

Ter Manyang, Executive Director, Center for Peace and Advocacy

Center for Peace and Advocacy asks the Unity government to place the state’s legislative body and swear into office the newly appointed National MPs.

President Salva Kiir Mayardit reconstituted the National parliament last month, ending the party-political deadlock over Transitional National Legislative Assembly formation.

The Revitalized Agreement requires the parties to reconstitute the two Legislatures on time to implement the Revitalized Agreement.

Human rights defenders were upset over such administrative delay dragging the agreement backward.

Ter Manyang, Executive Director (CPA), was concerned about the Parties’ long delays and silence to the Revitalized Agreement without making party-political deadlock public.

“In this respect, the CPA is calling on the Parties to the Revitalized Agreement (the R-ARCSS), particularly the Other Political Parties, which is comprising Alliance, Umbrella and Political Parties who participated at the HLRF and is headed by Hon. Peter Mayen Majongdit and the Incumbent TGoNU comprise the former GRSS, the former SPLM/A-IO led by General Taban Deng Gai, and the political parties TGoNU represented at the HLR headed by his Excellency, the President,” Manyang said.

CPA urges the two Parties to solve issues connected to the reconstitution of the National and State Parliaments for the public’s interest.

South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir reconstituted parliament with 550 MPs from all parties to the agreement as stipulated in the 2018 peace dead.
